mix of states to try to get to 270. there is a final push for the country decides they are ready to hire him and fire president obama. tavis: we talked earlier about this notion of being careful, how you walk this tightrope when you have a storm that is vexing so much of the country, but there are some issues in this storm the obama campaign could raise. i suspect they are smart not to raise it. when a candidate says, let's get rid of fema and send the money back to the states, now is theoretically a good time to have the conversation. when a candidate says they made a mockery of global warming and climate change, another issue that could be placed on the docket. i do not know how you do that without being seen as playing politics with the storm, but are these real issues? >> they are fair game. they will be very reluctant to do that kind of thing. they are anxious to have this president i'd like he is president. -- act like he is president. i think that is what they are going to do, remind people he is president of the united states. we have seen it time and time again. if this
. >> obama is destroying this country. >> the mosquing of america. >> we're establishing literally a command center for terrorism right at the 9/11 site. >> jon: literally. it is a literal command center for terrorism that we established at the site of 9/11. why would we do that? [laughter] but we did. literally. who would do such a thing, kill our grandmas, brainwash our children, institute shira law, bankrupt the children with $200 million a day travel habits? setting aside that the president didn't actually do any of those things, why would the president do these things? >> the president's a communist. >> this guy is i believe a racist. >> i think he's marxist. >> he's a natural secular european socialist. >> i think he's pro islamist. >> that's mubarak obama. >> hugo chavez obama. >> castro. >> lenin or mussolini. >> hitler. >> hitler. >> joseph stalin without the bloodshed. >> jon: with all due respect, joseph stalin without the bloodshed really not the same stalin. i mean, the bloodshed was his thing. without that he might as well just be, i don't know, gary stalin. i don't know. he's
whether or not the country is better off now than it would've been, had obama not been president. we were in a deep recession. and president obama's having the difficulty of having to make the argunt that, "things are better than they would have been, had i not done what i have done." but they're still not what they ought to be. and that's a tough case for the incumbent. and governor romney's exploiting it every inch of the way. >> my favorite whopper was when paul ryan said that the reason that they don't want to say how they will change the loopholes is because they'll be attacked. people will say mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." th from the st rhless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, but there's, there's one other thing. sometimes you sin by omission. an
the contras -- the country up and everybody is blaming obama. he can only do so much. guest: you are seeing the frustration the town hall meetings, that the candidates particularly in the more competitive districts, the sixth congressional district that you heard about earlier, which is one of the two key counties they divided presidential campaign. and over in the third congressional district, which is the western slope of colorado with scott haggis and tooten, they would probably say that as a key frustration. hearing it out on the campaign trail. how about translates is that it comes back to the economy and jobs. host: this is barbara on twitter. and she says, let's see, you are for brahney because he is for tax cuts for the rich, no regulation, a takeover women's rights to own other bodies, privatize all government agencies. how do you respond? guest: correct on the tax-cut and hopefully get the economy moving. i republican for my issues, which are limited government and lower taxes and less regulatory environment. in colorado, where you find is in her to give her as he moved west acros
when that storm takes aim for the most densely populated part of this country. president obama cancelled his event in florida. he had flown down to florida for the event before canceling both today's event and tomorrow's full schedule in wisconsin before flying back to d.c. this morning. back in the white house, the president was briefed by security officials. he also spoke to cameras himself. president clinton held president obama's campaign event in orlando without him. as well as a second event in ohio with vice president biden. the republican challenger mitt romney cancelled one of three campaign events on his schedule today. he did still address crowds in ohio and davenport, iowa. he held a town hall with voters in ohio by teleconference. but now romney's slate of events for tomorrow has been cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told sta
administration by the department of transportation in 2009 by president barack obama. he has over see the disbursement throughout the country through the american reinvestment act and has done so meeting every milestone established by that act. getting money into hands of transit operators whose budgets were severely strained by the worse economic downturn since our great depression. please welcome fta administrator peter rogof. [applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through p
in far southwestern virginia, coal country, inhospitable to president obama even though it tens to be democrat but it will depress the vote there. communities that are flooded, communities where it will be difficult if people to get around, in places like new jersey and eastern pennsylvania and new york and connecticut, these could tend to be more democrat areas and people would have difficulty there and it would depress president obama's turn out but we have a long time between now and election day and people fired up about the election one way or the other and i suspect most will try and make their way to the poll. >>neil: but if power is out in a lost the states and they don't extend the election that would be unlikely, you are dealing with paper ballots and manual accounts and it is a long night, right? karl: very long. most of the ballots tend to be counseled in a precinct level so it is manageable to get them done in a couple of hours and get the ballots and the tallies submitted to the counties but a lot of counties in the affected region are having to dust off contingen
, folks, this wasn't just about israel it was also about countries that pose a threat to israel. a threat that obama has done nothing to stop. >> we're four years closer to a nuclear iran. we're four years closer to a nuclear iran. >> yes. four years after obama was elected, four whole years have passed. (laughter) the president did nothing to stop the march of time (laughter) not only is iran four years closer to a nuclear bomb, if you think about it, everybody is. even me! (cheers and applause) admittedly, i'm still far away. the mentos and diet coke stage. but still. (laughter) and, folks, mitt laid out his prosecution of the president's weak leadership. >> four years ago the president began what i called an apology tour of going to various nations in the middle east and criticizing america. i think they look at that and saw weakness. >> nothing governor romney just said is true. >> yes it is! (laughter) you apologized. not only that, you bowed to leaders all over the world! that is not presidential! f.d.r. never bowed to foreign leaders. (laughter) he never even stood for them! (laugh
'm not sure. let's look at the republicans responding to the religion of president obama. >> do you think you have an obligation to say 34% of of the country believe the president of the united states is a muslim. >> the president said he's a christian. i take him at his word. >> it's not my job to tell american people what to think. >> there are elements in this country who question the president's citizenship, who think his birth certificate is inauthentic. will you call it what it is, crazy talk. >> i don't think it's nice to call anybody crazy. >> golly gee i don't know why the country calls him muslim at all. and why do they have negative feelings about him that's just a coincidence. and mitt romney is lying on the campaign again. i didn't see that coming. we'll take that talking point down. >> who will do for more for the auto industry? not [ male announcer ] you like who you are... and you learned something along the way. this is the age of knowing what you're made of. so, why let erectile dysfunction get in your way? talk to your doctor about viagra. 20
clinton was in orlando, florida to rally support. clinton said obama is the best choice for president. romney cancelled vents in on monday. he issued a statement calling on people to come together across the country and focus on giving support to those who need it. the two states are not in sandy's path but observers say romney did not want to appear to be koe kusing on the campaign in the midst of a potential national disaster. >>> u.n. and arab league envoy says the truce he brokered in syria for a holiday period has collapsed. syria's government and opposition forces agreed to stop all attacks which started last friday. the fighting has continued leaving many people dead. the he said he's deeply disappointed but will not be deterred. >> it will not discourage us. the people of syria deserve our support and our interest. >> russian forn says he supports a plan to sd inspectors back to syria. they're considering expanding the team of observers. the previous team left in august after a cease-fire at that time failed. the new york times reported last thursday that the family accrued as
that is going on. i agree with the lady when she says that president obama is the leader of the country. you are damn right he is the leader. and it is time he man up and take responsibility for the actions of his four years, whether it was his fault or not. host: we will leave it there. on twitter jim says there is a stupid question. fema will contract with private enterprise to clean up the mess and deliver the food and water. ray in omaha, nebraska, independent caller. good morning. caller: good morning. greetings to you. we appreciate the work that you do here in getting the voices of the people. i can't agree with the lady that just spoke any more. i'm very embarrassed. when you ask who you trust, i trust god first of all. man is subject to error. we all are. nobody is perfect. and it is disconcerting to hear the hate being spewed cutting up romney or cutting up someone whether we have enough on our plate that we need to correct. our country is in horrible condition and we send out money to repair mosques in egypt when charity begins at home. i believe in charity. i raised money. but wh
of the country will vote or be able to vote. while maryland, delaware and new jersey are obama territory, how they conduct themselves now is a big thing tonight. >> we will start in washington as obama canceled the campaign appearances and opted to the head quarters of the red cross and asking to donate to the relief funds. >> there are communities that can be affected. there are risks of flooding and downed power lines and risk of high winds. >> in ohio meanwhile mitt gathered with supporters gathering items. he thanked the crowd. >> we have heavy hearts as you know with all the suffering that's going on and a lot of people hurting this morning and last night. the storm goes on. >> in columbus joe said that the white house has received briefings on the disaster response and the pentagon maybe called in to help. >> the president made an offer and the possibilities extend and the defense department. >> meanwhile in new jersey republican chris christy made it clear that he is occupied and now off the campaign trail in support of mitt. >> i will tell you this administration at the moment could g
populated area of the country. >> millions of people are going to be affected. >> reporter: by noontime in washington, d.c., president obama breaking off from the campaign took up the mantle of office once again to urge americans to heed all the ominous warnings. >> the most important message that i have for the public right now is, please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. do not delay. don't pause, don't question the instructions that are being given. >> reporter: by afternoon, sandy spawned snow storms in west virginia and flood warnings as far west as chicago. and tonight, as we see the massive impact all along the east coast, the sheer scale of this storm is staggering. almost 4 million people without power. more than 1.5 million evacuated. 14,000 flight cancelations across the country. and from space tonight, the gigantic storm seems to have earned its halloween monitor, frankenstorm. from land tonight, the moon peeked through the clouds at the eye of the storm. and as i say, we can now start seeing some
election day november 6th. obama made the same pitch in the 2008 election. votes cast early accounted for 30% of the total. >> all across the country we're seeing a lot of early voting. it means you don't have to figure out whether you need to take time off work and figure out how to pick up the kids. >> experts say the share of early votes this time could reach 35%. the figure could exceed 60% in swing states such as colorado and florida. obama visited six battleground states during a swing to win over undecided voter. he slept on air force one to save time. the president spoke before an audience of 15,000 people in the state of virginia. he told them that a republican policies had created an outflow of american jobs and caused the economic downturn. >> we can't afford to go backwards to the same policies that got us into this mess. we have got to go forward with the approximately see that are getting us out of the mess and that's why i am running for a second term. that's why i need your help. >> romney is targeting voters in swing states. people believe ohio will be crucial. >> thi
it in context, one of the major premise sis of the romney campaign is barack obama came to power promising to bring the country together and, in fact, mitt romney is the guy do that. over this last three, four years, the president for all his efforts to reach out and find some compromise has been cornered into a position where he's been denied republican cooperation. so any endorsement, especially an endorsement at this point, even if it's an endorsement about a natural disaster, from a prominent republican, is really worth every piece of benefit that you can get because it says to independents, be it says to those moderate republicans, maybe this president isn't quite as polarizing as we thought. maybe there is a -- can't get the votes in congress what he wants to do he's not so unacceptable. that was mitch mcconnell's strategy. deny him a vote, make him look like a partisan figure and people will think he's unacceptble. chris christie who is not shy about calling people out, saying he's doing a good job and he's a democrat, then maybe he's not quite as extreme as some people on the right
and growing our economy. president obama has failed this country. the unemployment will not go away. >> i think we do need a brief rebuttal. >> you are saying you're willing to go to congress and hold the farmers hostage because of the inability to compromise. there is an answer and you split the difference between the house bill and the senate bill. our farmers deserve better than this. our national security is linked to our food security. you think i am an ineffective legislator. i encourage you to go up to the niagara falls airbase and talk to the first person you see. >> they say you are not. >> ok. this question is on taxes. i believe you have signed grover norquist's pledge not to raise taxes. correct? while you were a county executive, you did go to court to raise property taxes. you changed your thinking on taxes? or do you see some type of difference between local taxes? >> my role as county executive is very different. as county executive, i am required to have a balanced budget. i took over a county that was effectively bankrupt. when you looked at the fact we had no money in t
obama. -- corporations running their country, they will regret their choice for ever. everything the president has done -- doing it -- he inherited bankruptcy of the whole country. -- shipped off the jobs to foreign countries. i lived through that. i have been a refugee almost all of my life. guest: a couple of the important points that you bring up -- one of them is that, i do believe that voters in florida and the voters in iowa, and voters across the country understand the depth of what this president and his team faced when it came in. today is the anniversary of the great crash in 1929. the dow did not come back to its pre-1929 levels until 1954. that is what a depression looks like. that is what this president, his policies, his team, that is what was prevented. i do believe that americans are looking very carefully at where we were and the direction and pass that we are on. i think that is the critical piece. we are working very hard here in iowa, i know that my counterparts are working very hard with people who believe like you do in florida, to make sure that this path c
of course all around the country. >> power outages as well. >> the storm sending romney and obama off the campaign now. they are monitoring the impact. he has canceled plans to attend a rally in green bay, wisconsin. the romney campaign also cancelling events through out the day in order to ow of the sensitivity. storm event later today in ohio. this super storm likely to cost businesses a lot of money. economy experts predicting losses will be more than last year's storm. the travel industry expected to lose over $700 million from airlines trains and car companies to spending their operations over the last few days. retailers and corporations expect end of the quarter hit because they will be shut down for at least two-days and the insurance industry could see claims as high as $10 billion. >> voters will get a chance to say they oppose the mandate. voters can say whether or not they want to block the mandate. it forces people to buy insurance. 16 other states passed laws or made changes to their state's constitutions in order to block that mandate. >> brand new video from queens new
hard. i'm going to visit president obama's campaign first. he has digital teams across the country but the one he has in ohio is one of his largest. >> this is a check. email i just sent. landing page. done. >> sreenivasan: this may look like a traditional campaign team doing traditional field work but they're part of a campaign that's collected more voter data than any other in history. and their volunteers are using a slew of new tools for both data gathering and voter targeting. the g.p.s. in your smart phone is the blue dot in the center. i'm meeting with the digital director for ohio, ashley bryant, a key player in one of the most data hungry campaigns in history. >> these flags are the voters. these are the doors that you can potentially knock on. >> sreenivasan: now anyone who signs up for the campaign online can download the obama app that comes preloaded with targets and tailored scripts. they're not just pitching president obama. they're also collecting even more information. >> who do you support for president? and we simply click that button. they're a strong supporter,
the country and seen on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: president obama on the job yesterday at the white house, commander in chief for hurricane sandy. back to your calls about how this election -- how the storm impacts the election. first, here is a little item that caught my attention. even members of the armed services, subject to identity theft. story out of washington state. officials raided several locations in washington state. finding that hundreds of people including active duty military personnel had their identities stolen. you hear a story like that. you need some protection against identity theft. i recommend -- what i've got. lifelock ultimate. i recommend it. it includes keeping track of your bank accounts. but of course, lifelock can't protect you or your bank account if you're not a member. call now and mention press 60 for 60 risk-free days of lifelock ultimate identity theft protection. if you're not happy call within another 60 days and cancel and get a full refund. give them
conclude obama is responsible for the hurricane. of course not. but if you looking at a candidate, incumbent and ask am i happy with the state of the country right now, possible on the margins to effect the tiny group of undecided voters at this stage, you know, the fact there is a hurricane and ugly pictures on television add to the cumulative effect that america is not going in right direction. >> response and how it, the response has gone arguably you had new jersey governor chris christie who said the president has done very well. it's gone smooth. most of the response is handleed by the governors. state-by-state. but it does require some federal assistance. coordination on the federal level. he said the president is to be mended. the president is going to new jersey tomorrow. chuck? >> i would perhaps agree with tucker if it were in some way clear that president obama had mishandled this disaster or bungled it. but he is being praised by republican governor and the one that gave the keynote address at the republican national convention. further more, this whole thing is an op
. if you want your town insured, you have to do this. in the real world, barack obama's policies work better. >> he's unbelievable. our extreme weather we're facing right now in the northeast from droughts and wildfires across the country, now hurricane sandy, make the case that manmade global warming is not only real but is having an effect. right now. u.s. congressman ed markey, is the top democrat on the natural resources on the congress and senior member of the energy and commerce committee. michael oppenheimer is a professor of geosciences at princeton university. i want to start with professor oppenheimer. simply put, when you look at hurricane sandy, which is a funny name for something hitting our beaches and causing such havoc, do you see climate change, manmade climate change, in the face? >> this is definitely the kind of thing we expect to see more of in the future, but in addition, while global warming didn't cause hurricane sandy, it almost surely made the impact worse, and that's because sea level has been rising for the last century due to global warming, and when this
. president obama left florida to head straight to washington to deal with the storm. >> we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process to a wide swamp of the country, and millions of people are going to be affected. >> there are families in harm's way that will be hurt either in their possessions or perhaps in something more severe. >> severe indeed. already we are hearing reports that in the tri-state area, five people have fallen victim to this storm. reporting live from manhattan, karen colleed. now back to you. >>> republican presidential nominee mitt romney has also cancelled campaign events due to the storm. scratched an appearance in wisconsin tonight. paul ryan cancelled rallies in florida and both republicans cleared their campaign schedules tomorrow. >>> and superstorm sandy is turning lives upside down. giving you a look at the storm right now. it came ashore in new jersey earlier today, wind gusts 80 to 85 miles per hour. those winds are still gusting to 80 miles per hourment sandy is a post-trorm. it has merged with a winter storm and now is not only bringin
obama. or vice president joe biden. the romney campaign announced mitt romney will host a so-called "storm relief event" in ohio tomorrow with nascar's richard petty. and country music's randy owen. if the serious aftermath of this hurricane runs into this weekend then for all practical purposes the candidates may have already made their closing arguments to the voters. what they have to say now may not be heard over the storm coverage. team obama's last public act took place in ohio while the president was in washington. >> we went to florida last night and he got up this morning and called me and said, i've got to go back right now. the storm is getting out of hand i have to handle it. i said, mr. president, that's the right call. >> i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing. >> mitt romney's last come pain event was today in iowa. >> i want to take a moment before we begin just to think about what's happening on the coast, the east coast of our country right now. i
, overseeing all other agencies. it's one of only three rescue outfits of its kind in the entire country. >>> with a week, the election just a little over a week away, they can't shut down their campaigns. but president obama and mitt romney also can't ignore hurricane sandy. so today marked a brief suspension of the presidential campaign. mr. obama canceled campaigning in florida, wisconsin and flew back to washington to help coordinate the federal hurricane response. mitt romney canceled events in wisconsin and florida. neither campaign wants to appear insensitive with so many americans in harm's way. but the weather delay won't help romney. >> if it benefits anybody, it probably benefits the president because he gets to look presidential because he is the president. he's in charge of the government and in charge of that response. >> romney's campaign is thinking of sending him to new jersey later this week where he could meet with storm victims a with governor chris christie, a romney ally. president obama may sit wisconsin tomorrow. of course, we invite you to stay with nbc bay area
debate, president obama touted coal and said we now have a clean coal technology and it should be part of our future energy mix. i agree with him. we have a 300 years' supply in this country. do you still disagree with the president and myself and think that coal is a thing of the past? what would you say to the miners about why their jobs are going to be a thing of the past? >> i grew up in a family of miners. my father was a miner and my grandfather was a miner. it is honest work. i respect greatly those union miners up in northwestern new mexico who do good work. they put food on their family's table. when it comes to policy, i will be looking for the policies that create the most jobs in the future. so when my kids grow up in new mexico, they have a bright future. today, with an industry that she calls the green dream, there are five times as many people working directly in renewables as directly in coal in new mexico. i will not apologize for investing in the future of our energy supply. we should be moving in the direction of domestic and more clean. it is not a dream. 20 years a
prepared all of the damage that barack obama found on the day he took office when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month? he said, "no way." he said most countries that have these kind of damages took many years to get over. we do not go back. he said we can beat that. in america we can beat that. because of our energy and productivity of our workers, our research and development. maybe we could beat that. we could do seven or eight years and do better. nobody could have done it in four years. what has happened in four years? the president stopped the slide into a depression. you have been paid back for every nickel that was put into the financial industry plus interest. you got your money back. our banks are in the best shape they have been in 20 years thanks to those new rules on wall street that prohibit use for bailouts and protect against them goes to governor romney want to weaken. we have 5.3 million private sector jobs, twice as many as in the previous years under the republicans before the meltdown. as everyone knows, there are 250,000 more. i have heard governor romney's expla
, is obama's base, and people who are suffering from hardship anyway might find it especially difficult to vote, and that could have an impact. the other is that throughout the country, depths tr democrats try voting. gallup said republicans are actually in the lead in early voting at the moment, but the point is democrats worry that they'll get their base out. they line up at the nursing home or line up the union members and march them in and do early voting so they can control it. the republicans don't need to do that and probably can't do it anyway, and therefore, losing early voting will not be a significant event for the republicans. >> i've argued that this campaign by the president is so different than the person that he showed himself to be in 2008. i mean, you talk about the smallest of things, bayonets, big bird, a dunce cap on romney, accusing him of murder, dirty air and aware. a pro obama super pac just came out. watch this bad. how bad and how low this sunk and how beneath the dignity of the office of the presidency this is. >> mitis. >> watch this. the week before they ca
